Terry William Whiteside

Terry William Whiteside, age 72, went to be with Jesus on December 18, 2021. He passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family at his home near Potwin, Kansas. Terry was born November 16, 1949 to Wayne and Marjorie Whiteside who preceded him in death. He and Susan Beth (Page) Whiteside were married March 23, 1974 in El Dorado. Terry graduated from Remington High School with the class of 1967, and soon thereafter was drafted by the United States Army. He served in Vietnam in the infantry, having been awarded two bronze stars. After fulfilling his duty to our country, Terry returned home where he worked at AGCO Industries (formerly Hesston Corporation) for 47 years before retiring in 2015.

Terry was a devoted husband and father who coached numerous youth teams and later supported and attended sporting events for his sons and granddaughter. He was also committed to his friends and fellowman where on several occasions, he risked his life to save others. He was a member of Zion Lutheran Church and the Newton American Legion, Post 2. After living in Newton for many years, in 2005, he and Susan moved to the Potwin family homestead. While living there, Terry enjoyed working outdoors and spent many hours renovating the farm.

Terry is survived by Susan, his wife of 47 years, sons Brandon and Colby Whiteside and granddaughter Lisette Whiteside. He was preceded in death by his parents and older brother Ralph Whiteside. Terry is further survived by siblings Patricia Curtis (Arnold) Newton, Robert Whiteside (Janice) and Alan Whiteside, Potwin, sister-in-law Terryl (Page) Pajor (Joe), Wichita, and brother-in-law Edgar Page (Sharon), Overland Park, as well as nieces and nephews.

Colby and Family:

It's with a heavy heart that I write this. We will continue to pray for the Whitesides.

The Lord said "I go to prepare a place for you." And we know he has.

Sue, Brandon and Colby, you know how much we all love you guys and how much we love Terry. He was one in a million, just a great guy who would do anything for anyone. Always had such a cute little smile and just loved to do whatever Sue asked him to do whether it was moving, or wanting him to move furniture or to go to estate sales, you name it he did it for her because he loved her so much. They were truly truly examples of real love and what being soulmates means. He will always be remembered as one of the good guys. His legacy will be all the awesome memories you have in your hearts.
What's neat about being a Christian is you don't ever say goodbye, you just say see you later. And we know we all will!

All of our love to all of you!!!
